Simple and Easy Lechon Paksiw Recipe

Lechon Kawali

We often find ourselves rushed during lunch time. When we have enough time, we do cook proper meals but when we're pressed for time (or when we're feeling lazy) we just buy home-cooked meals in the nearby kitchenette. Lechon Kawali or fried liempo is a favorite, it's not that healthy but it tastes good. When we do buy this dish, we often have to buy one or two more dishes with soup or sauces because fried liempo tends to be too dry.

Then, Berto found this really easy way to "recycle" this dish into Lechon Paksiw, and added his own twist to it. Here's the super simple, easy and fast recipe for Lechon Paksiw:

How to cook Lechon Paksiw (Pork Stewed in a Tangy Liver Sauce)

Ingredients: 

250 g           Lechon Kawali or Fried Liempo, cut into serving pieces (in our case, 3 orders)  =)
1 cup           Water
1 bottle        Sarsa ni Mang Tomas (Lechon Sauce)
1 tbsp          Vinegar
1 pc             Bayleaf
1/2 tsp         Peppercorns
1 1/2 tbsp    Sugar
1 clove        Garlic 

Procedure: 

In a saucepan or small pot, saute garlic until slightly brown. Combine the rest of ingredients and cook over medium flame. Boil for three minutes.

Lower the heat and simmer for 30 minutes or until desired thickness of the sauce is achieved. If you want a thicker sauce, you may add cornstarch dissolved in water. Stir constantly. You may also season with salt, as desired.

Tadah! Serve with lots of rice! 

Super simple and easy to make, but super yummy Lechon Paksiw

I told you this dish is so easy and fast to do! Even our picky eater Bea loves this dish!  Go ahead, and try it. Enjoy!

Weekly Round Up 2014: 1/52 Jan 1 - 5


1/52 Jan 1-5

As part of my effort to try to blog more regularly,  I'm going to launch a new series in my blog: my weekly round up.  In Instagram I joined the photo a day challenge.  Weekly,  I will post those photos here and talk about them a bit more. 


Today,  I'm posting my week 1.

Day 1 - Happy New Year!  Here's a photo of our round fruits.  It is a typical Filipino tradition to collect 12 round fruits for Luck. 

Day 2 -  a photo of my planners.  I really want to be more organized this year.  Hopefully my planners will help me with that goal.  My Fino planner was a gift from Berto while the Starbucks planner was a Christmas gift from my sister.

Day 3- I cooked!  Before 2013 ended last year,  I bought several cookbooks.  I intend to try and cook more this year.  I started with Tinolang Baboy.  Tinola has always been my favorite but lately I haven't been able to eat any because of Bea's chicken allergy.

Day 4 -  family bonding over McDonald's delivery.  Bea has been asking for pancakes,  hashbrown and hot chocolate from McDo and I finally gave in and ordered breakfast.  She deserves a treat on a Saturday before classes resume.

Day 5 - cleaning supples.  Bea and I went grocery shopping last Sunday.  We bought her snacks for school.  I also bought cleaning supplies.  We let our regular cleaning lady go so I have no choice but to add cleaning to my housekeeping repertoire.  :)
 

'till next week for my next weekly round up ;) 

Happy 2014!

Hello guys! One week into the new year!  Wow that was fast!  Berto and I have so many adventures to share,  we don't know where to start.  Hehe. 

As posted in my other blog,  I have several goals for this year,  namely organization, home management and fitness.  As part of my organization and (mental)  fitness,  I really do have to step up my blogging routine to declutter my brain and my phone/camera/laptop of digital files I've kept through time with the intention of blogging about our adventures.  

I'm going to blog more often and more regularly.  There. I've said so many times and I'm saying it again.  Failure in the past must be taken as a challenge for the future right? 

So happy new year dear friends! Let's claim this year as the year when all our dreams will come true! :)
